Or maybe we should all use these: [link] - in case these exist in Crazy Three Hole Paper Country! xD NO holes at all! Pure unspoilt paper!
Haha please excuse my puzzlement, but I really could not imagine how a ring binder with 3 rings looks like - I had to take a look at the English Wikipedia to find a picture! ^^ How did you Americans possibly came up with the idea of using 3 holes?? In ring binders with 2 rings like ours the .. "opening mechanism" (don't ask me for a suitable translation of "Aktenordnerschließvorrichtung" ^^) is in the center, between the holes. I think that's logical
Haha! Oh sweet! One big clip instead of any rings.
*lol* Aha, no no, I hope I didn't sound all.... closed-minded or too rude or anything; I's just teasin' ya.
And wow, your aktenordnerschließvorrichtung is in the middle? Like only one of them? That sounds kind of handy, actually. Our aktenordnerschließvorrichtungs are at the top and bottom, and if your notebook is really really full, or just plain old, then clicking one of them open won't necessarily click the other one open like it's theoretically supposed to.
Also, that is my favorite new word of the day. What a mouthful!
It IS handy indeed ^^ BTW I made some pictures of my ring binder, including my "Aktenordnerschließvorrichtung" (and some professional drawings from philosophy class in the second picture ) [link]
I really have NO idea how to name that open-and-close thingy Wikipedia calls it Exzentermechanik (Exzenter (?!) mechanism). Never heard it though xD But my language is inventive in creating long and complicated-sounding words!
Haha oh my gooooshh! They're like all big and huge and right in the middle! And it's got, like, holes for 'em out in front. Hee hee, thanks for taking these pics! This is most interesting and enlightening.
